After the official launch event, Huawei’s CEO Richard Yu had told Android Authority during an interview that the company is hoping to ship 20 million Mate 30 series smartphones with the backing of Chinese sale.
“I think this ban will influence our out of China sales. But China sales will increase a lot because this is the most competitive 5G flagship in the world.”Richard Yu, Huawei CEO
According to Yu, Huawei’s smartphone arm has also been recovering well ever since the US trade ban took a toll on it’s smartphone sales back in May this year.
Earlier on, renowned analyst, Ming-Chi Kuo from TF International Securities also shares the same positive sentiment as he predicts that Huawei may capture as much as 45% to 50% market share in China in 2020.
To cushion the impact of the omission of pre-loaded Google Play apps and services on their future smartphones, Huawei is reportedly planning to unlock the bootloader of select devices. This is one of the many workarounds the company are exploring to bring those crucial apps and services back to their device.
